Ft. Hays State Wants To Add Wind Energy

KSCB News - July 16, 2012 8:14 am

County leaders in western Kansas are considering whether to allow Fort Hays State University to install wind turbines.

Ellis County commissioners will take up a wind-energy related conditional-use permit at their Monday night meeting.

Fort Hays State University has proposed the project, which includes two 2.1 megawatt turbines. Last month, the county’s planning and zoning commission gave the project a conditional recommendation.

Plans call for the turbines to be placed 3.5 miles south of Fort Hays State. They are projected to provide 97-percent of the university’s electrical needs.
